Possibly nothing because they're scars, not fresh marks. They may ask if you're doing okay and let you know what support is available if you need it.

Probably talk to you about it discreetly, ask if you are ok (although some would probably not do this out of embarrassment and not wanting to pry).

It is a fact of life that some people self harm and as long as they're not being abused, it's their body. But the pastoral team in the school should be informed, just to make them aware that you might be struggling and need their support in the future. The student should also be informed that the pastoral team are there to talk to and that an appointment could be made with a school counsellor, if required.

As someone else has said, it depends if they're scars or cuts. Cuts are a more urgent issue than scars as it's obviously something happening at the present moment, whereas scars indicate it's in the past. However that doesn't mean the individual isn't still cutting now, they just may it doing it in a more discreet place.
